9. Bottom Panel

The bottom panel of the model tab provides necessary information about the model such as node count, preview of the node value, errors on the model, analysis of the model, formula editor and the model name.

The first one is the Preview section which displays the total and period values of the node selected by the user.

The second one is the Errors section which shows the count of errors in the model if any. Selecting this icon will list all the error nodes along with the error description. The errors are highlighted on the grid and you can navigate to the error node by clicking on the node name from the error section.

In the below image, you can see the errors and their description at the bottom of the screen in the Errors section. The total number of errors is also displayed at the top.

The Analysis window assesses the model's complexity by analyzing its configuration - type, configuration, dependencies, etc. and shows the complexity index for all the nodes.

Formula Editor window allows the user to view, enter, or edit the formula contained in the formula type nodes. When you make any changes to the formula, the Apply button gets enabled which can be clicked to apply the new formula.

At the bottom left of the panel, you can find the Total node count with hidden node count (if any) under the info icon.

In case a filter is applied on the grid, the filtered node count is displayed along with the total node count and hidden node count under the info icon.

The last item on the right side of the status bar is the Model name with the logo. Both the model name and the logo can be updated in the Settings. Alternatively, the model name can be renamed by double-clicking on it.
